Who Will Survive in America: There's No Place Like Home

Watching the Throne: A Lyrical Analysis of Kanye West

By New School Critics

Who Will Survive in America: There's No Place Like Home

Tuesday, 27 November

After nearly three years of analysis, Chris and Travis have finally reached the end of what is considered Kanye West's masterpiece album. Transitioning from the exhaustingly deep and poetic Lost in the World, we dive straight into Who Will Survive in America—a seemingly simple song that actually encapsulates everything Kanye had explored on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Chris and Travis break down the track line by line, and in effect retrospectively evaluate Kanye's entire career.

If you'd like to support the show, please rate us on iTunes, or help us out on Patreon.

You can buy The Yeezus Book—a scholarly, visual-heavy coffee table book that breaks down Yeezus in its entirety, from the album's narrative to the production to the tour.

Check out our merchandise line.

Follow us on Twitter if you also like to constantly talk about how awesome Kanye is (we'll undoubtedly respond to you).

And please, as always, stay loopy.
